GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY HELD FOR STAYNER CARE CENTRE REDEVELOPMENT

Stayner, ON – The Stayner Care Centre community was joined by Mayor Doug Measures in a wintry and windswept field to celebrate the official groundbreaking, on Junction Road, on the long-term care home’s future site, just 1.5 kilometres from the existing home.

Once completed, the redeveloped Stayner Care Centre will be a 3-storey home for 128 residents. They will benefit from an excellent standard of care in a modern building and daily services tailored to their unique care needs and interests.

Jessica Francis, Administrator of Stayner Care Centre, said, “We’re proud of the relationships we have built over the years with our entire community of residents, family members, our team members and volunteers, and the broader community of Stayner. I speak for everyone when I say they deserve to have the highest quality of care possible, and our community is due for this redevelopment.”

“We wouldn’t be here today without the dedicated support of each of them, and our local government – Mayor Doug Measures and the Councillors of the Township of Clearview – and our provincial government,” she added.

The state-of-the-art home will feature four home areas, each with spacious and well-lit rooms, a family lounge, activity room, bathing and shower spas, conference room and a dining room. The main floor will include a larger activity room, celebration room, craft room, restorative care centre, beauty salon, family dining lounge and cafe for resident and family member use and enjoyment. It will also include construction of 23 senior apartments.

The redevelopment will provide a major infusion of energy into Stayner and neighbouring communities by the way of direct investment, job creation and tax revenue to local government.

Mayor Measures, who attended the event, said, “I am pleased to see Jarlette Health Services continue to work with Clearview Township staff and council on the development of a new Stayner Care Centre.”

Plans for a future retirement lodge, on the same site, will help respond to a shortage of senior housing in the broader Stayner community. This will also complete a vision for a Continuum of Care Campus which will attract senior-focused services.

Construction is scheduled to begin in early Spring 2023 and be completed in early Fall 2025.

Stayner Care Centre is excited about the opportunity to bolster their roster as they will be hiring additional team members, on a part-time and full-time basis, to augment our dedicated team.
